Jeremy Stephens and Arnold Allen are on a collision course.

The two featherweight notables are set to square off Nov. 7 at an event expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Multiple people with knowledge of the situation informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

Stephens (28-18 MMA, 15-17 UFC) has not won a fight since February 2018 when he knocked out Josh Emmett. One of the longest-tenured fighters on the roster, Stephens has gone 0-4 with one no contest in that stretch.

Allen (16-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) rides a nine-fight winning streak entering the fight. He has not lost in the UFC, beating Nik Lentz, Gilbert Melendez and Jordan Rinaldi in his most recent three outings. Allen was supposed to fight Josh Emmett in January. However, an injury to Emmett led to the bout’s cancellation.

With the addition, the Nov. 7 event lineup now includes:

  • Thiago Santos vs. Glover Teixeira
  • Arnold Allen vs. Jeremy Stephens
  • Jack Shore vs. Khalid Taha
  • Brendan Allen vs. Ian Heinisch
  • Claudia Gadelha vs. Yan Xiaonan
